Generous sized room that was lovely and warm on a cold winter's night. Well appointed with a comfy bed. Lovely lounge facility with a warm fire. Good facilities. Was slightly disappointed at the lack of dining options at the hotel.
We chose to stay at Te Weheka to break our journey from Wanaka to Nelson. It was a brief stay: late afternoon arrival and 0630 departure the next morning for a very wet journey home. It was a very good choice. The staff were helpful and obliging and the room very comfortable. The guest lounge was comfortable and well equipped. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the village centre. We will certainly be back.
Our party of four (two rooms) stayed at Distinction Fox Glacier at the last minute as we had to re-route our trip to Queenstown due to flooding near Christchurch. We were so happy we visited Fox Glacier and choose the Distinction. We are well travelled and to be honest the room we had was one of the nicest hotel rooms we have stayed in anywhere on our travels al over the world. Super clean, large and very comfortable. The manager was fantastic and booked us into a local restaurant for dinner due to a late arrival on our behalf. If you are stopping in Fox Glacier, choose the Distinction.
This is a good quality property in Fox, close to all local amenities. Our room and bathroom were large, modern and well fitted out. Large comfortable bed. A very good breakfast included makes this an excellent choice. Our host was most helpful and arranged helicopter flights for us on the spot. Recommended.
We spent two nights at the Distinction Hotel in Fox township. Very comfortable room Spacious,clean and well maintained Nice breakfast Friendly staff Had a large window /balcony in room looking over the township and countryside. Enjoyed our stay. Walking,visited Gillespies Beach Great glacier views Some good local restaurants Well worth visiting
Stopped in for a night on the way to Queenstown. Lovely room, large, spacious, well equipped. Bed very comfortable. Best bath I have had in years. Christian, on reception, was helpful, full of local knowledge and recommendations and gave us some great tips. A lovely peaceful night away. We will be back!
I originally thought I'd booked us to stay in Franz Josef but very glad I was mistaken. Fox definitely smaller and not as busy so really enjoyed it. I'd spoken to Christian a couple of times before we arrived as was trying to figure out how best to organise a helicopter trip. Followed his advice and waited until we arrived. Very helpful staff. Hotel is in great location with nicely appointed rooms and the breakfast was plenty. When we stayed they were pretty full which was great to hear. No problems with any guest or road noice. Hope that things start to improve for the area. Great selection of toiletries.
We stayed two nights at the delightful Te Weheka Distinction hotel at Fox Glacier, and found it to be a very pleasant experience, made doubly so by the informative, helpful and friendly manager, Christian. Upon arrival, he explained everything we needed to know about ensuring a great visit, particularly advising us to be up and at the glacier viewpoint, and lake Matheson, before 10 am so as to ensure a clear sky and best view of the mountains and glacier. This was spot on advice, and our views next morning were framed in brilliant blue sky, not a cloud in sight. He also recommended a great restaurant nearby, Betsey Jane’s, which was so good we booked again the second night. The room itself was on the second floor, spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean, with roomy bathroom including shower and bath. Well stocked tea and coffee making facilities. The view was pleasant and there was a small balcony. Breakfast is included and is a very nicely presented, wide range of fruit and cereals then several cooked options. Again, the service here was attentive and friendly. There is a very nice lounge available to relax in and guest laundry facilities too. We enjoyed our stay here very much, thanks Christian, for your advice and attention to detail.…
Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Comfy beds, great shower. Nice quiet lounge area with games. Well appointed room with a nice view of the mountains. Recommended by the manager to go on the Lake Matheson walk early in the morning. Was incredible. Thanks guys and I hope you get busy quickly x
Spacious rooms. Great to have a bath not just shower. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Easy off street parking. Pity didn't have sky TV, but fully understand in circumstances, with how Sky charge, that this could not be economic.
